    I've already posted something on this but I just need to do whatever I can to keep my girl alive. I have a 4 year old hen who hasn't layed for 2 years. Someone said that she probably had enternall laying but I don't think that's it because I've reasoned that she would've died by now. She isn't swollen anywhere either. She doesn't have a lot of energy and she hasn't been eating for a couple days. She's been drinking except for today when she would only eat the snow. She's able to jump into the coop and climb up the stairs to the nesting boxes. Is the weather effecting her somehow? It's been pretty crazy here. It snows and then rains and then it's freezing cold and then it's in the 60s. Is the inconsietency of the weather throwing her off? Is she irritated by the rapid changes? What should I do? Is there something I should be feeding her? HELP! Please just help.

    If she had become an internal layer there should have been other signs by now...
    Your old girl is probably getting messed up because of the weather. I know that my old girl Obelisk won't go out if it's too cold and forget the snow...
